Wish Gift List: The Lil Bee.

My Secret Santa recipient:
The Office Clue Game. The perfect marriage of a hilarious sitcom and the old-school board game. The card will read: Dwight Schrute in the Conference Room with a Stapler.
My friend Melanie is the best gift giver so I always try to be equally as creative, and that usually means turning to my favorite blogs for inspiration. These melamine plates that I saw on Caro’s blog incorporate Yasmine’s beautiful downloadable designs from A Print A Day.

My cousin:
She’s just moved to Boulder and would look adorable in this faux fur vest from Fred Flare. And since the weather in Colorado can make dressing a bit difficult, I’ll give her the Feather Report app to help her pick out her outfits each day.

My mom:
My mother and I both collect mismatched teacups and saucers, so I’m constantly on the lookout for pieces to add to her collection. This Remember Me teacup from etsy shop Gathering Vintage and pretty much anything from Ninainvorm’s gorgeous shop are right up her alley.

My dogs:
We’ll make a donation in their name to our favorite animal rescue site, Save A Sato, which places abandoned and abused dogs from Puerto Rico into loving homes in the States.

My little girl:
This year is my daughter’s first Christmas, and while I know she’s too young to appreciate gifts, I want to get her something to mark the occasion. This print by Abby Powell Thompson would look adorable in her pink and yellow nursery. She’ll also get this Mini Rodini electric guitar tee, to help cultivate her inner rockstar.

My husband:
Paulie and I love photography and own a couple of Abby’s prints already. I know he’d appreciate this “autumn road” polaroid print, which is reminiscent of the quiet, winding road where we live. And though I have quite a few other things up my sleeve for him, I can’t spill the beans—he’s most definitely snooping this list!

This year Melisa’s family is has a $75 spending limit, so every gift she’s listed is $75 or less! You can read more from her at The Lil Bee and get your daily fashion forecast at The Feather Report. Thanks, Mel!

    Thank YOU, Kel! Putting together this list was a lot of fun and really got me to focus on what I'm giving ahead of time…not the 11th hour like I usually do!

    I love the idea of donating to an animal rescue — I was thinking of doing the same this year! Lovely gift ideas here — the Fred Flare fur vest is adorable, too!
